Course Description

Curious about how the notion of place and space is affected by Social Media, or how the Web differs from location to location? Cyber-Geography in Geospatial Intelligence looks at the geographies of cyberspace, the geopolitics of cyberwar, and at techniques that might be employed in such conflicts. Wondering how this all relates to censorship on the Internet? This class explores ideas on governance and network architecture, the politics of censorship and hacking, and the politics of grassroots activism enabled by the internet. Students in this class will use a range of information systems, engage with the emerging landscape as defined by the geographies of the Internet, and will examine the impact as new technologies and intelligence intersect with one another.

This course is part of the following programs: Masters of Geographic Information Systems, Postbaccalaureate Certificate in Geographic Information Systems, and Master of Professional Studies in Homeland Security.
